i dont agree, i only think of it as good because it was the first anime series i ever saw. But in comparison to many others ive seen recently, DBZ sucks. But it still has that special place in my heart lol. Rurouni Kenshin is my god of anime.

njdss4 10-04-2004 05:04 AM

Nope, sorry sliced bread. I think just about any anime beats out DBZ. DBZ is too drawn out and full of utterly impossible events occuring every other episode. I can't stand any of the characters, either, except maybe for the little bald guy (he seems to have a good head on his shoulders, minus the hair).

Lionheart 10-04-2004 06:01 PM

lol yeah but krillin was incredibly weak, but incredibly funny, but incredibly panzy....ugh so many contradicting factors...

njdss4 12-04-2004 05:08 AM

Yeah, aren't the good characters always like that? They make them smart, but weak. No wonder I don't watch it.

Lionheart 13-04-2004 02:35 AM

yes...Kuwabara is like that, minus the smart aspect lol.

njdss4 14-04-2004 06:33 AM

Kuwabara is smart in a different way. He is smart on the battlefield, and humorous off the battlefield. He may not be the brightest bulb en la caja (box), and he may not be the main character, but he's still the most likeable character in the series.

Lionheart 14-04-2004 09:55 PM

oh yeah most definitely. Yusuke is likeable too, especially as he matures during the dark tournament, but Dragonball Z has no real characters like that...

njdss4 16-04-2004 07:21 PM

Yeah. I'm surprised sliced bread hasn't come back to defend his beloved series. Maybe he agrees with us?

Lionheart 18-04-2004 07:04 PM

no he just hasnt been online lol.

its so..... so..... commercial is the word 4 it. i think it kinda lost its charm..... plus theres why better mangas out there like 3x3eyes and Guy awankening of the devil. Princess mononoke and Battle angel Alita is cool 2

Lionheart 17-05-2004 09:24 PM

id say more Americanized over commercial. Unlike most dubbed animes (where they translate it and edit some stuff out), DBZ is completely altered. Its not only edited, but completely changed (like the one episode of Yu Yu Hakusho, with Chu the Drunken Master, they rewrote the script to take out any and all alcohol references). It is commerical too though. Overall, its mediorce at best, something to do if youre completely bored.

Nosam 17-05-2004 09:30 PM

good point. along time ago tho, when it was the first anime on tv it was the best there was. but when everyone started 2 get into it. the hype annoyed me it ruined it just like pokemon

Nosam 17-05-2004 09:38 PM

oh and talkin about commercial anime have you seen the End of Evangelion (movie not series) with is got to be one of the most cool, confusing and weird movies i have ever seen? ooo that gives me an idea

Lionheart 17-05-2004 09:40 PM

yep, exactly i agree completely (that and when youre age 13-15ish it seems so cool).

EDIT: i didnt see your second post. I really dont like Eva or Escaflowne. im not a fan of Mech anime.

hey dont worry bout it every1 has their faults lol. i just like eva cos of the storyline. i mean who woulda thought that we were the final angels.... i still dont understand most of it tho

Lionheart 17-05-2004 09:46 PM

nobody does, everything thinks the ending is WAY too philisophical. Everyone that ive ever talked to about it doesnt fully get the end.

Nosam 17-05-2004 09:52 PM

u kno y its like that? the director got aload of crud 4 the series endin so he changed it. well no1 can bad mouth it now cos no understands it

Lionheart 17-05-2004 10:00 PM

well even still, the ending is bad, dont really care for the reasoning lol.

PSO Paul 06-06-2004 11:00 AM

:cool: i personly think that dragon ball the series are far far better than the film in many ways :alien:

Yeah the movies were just attempts to get more and more and more money for themselves, however when they made GT the same was true so I'm not so sure what to think about that. :D

Lionheart 06-06-2004 10:54 PM

im still not very fond of anything DB as of now.

Does that include DB Swords? Sry, that was off topic, they really changed DB series though when it left Jap......Like altered the storyline and everything(really bad)

Lionheart 08-06-2004 04:17 AM

yep and the script was completely rewritten.

Gotien 12-06-2004 08:16 PM

But thats y they have DB in sub from japan...

Lionheart 12-06-2004 10:11 PM

well the voice actors are the old ass JP actors from like 1980, that makes it difficult to tolerate too, but it is a bit better in JP.

Gotien 13-06-2004 08:55 AM

Especially when you know the language...(still trying to re-learn it cause my short term mem sux and i stopped during finals...:tired: )

Lionheart 13-06-2004 07:00 PM

yeah i agree, i've learned a fairly decent amount of JP and i've noticed that subtitles are often wrong. Like in Azumanga Daioh, people are cheering a girl on saying things like "you can do it!" etc and says "hai" meaning "yes" but the subtitles says "thank you", completely different words but whatever. Anyway, topic Lionheart.

Gotien 21-06-2004 09:49 PM

DB series would've been alot better if there was more than just the world domination plot.... to much talking in the fights, not enough just kick ass funny down time between fights....

Lionheart 22-06-2004 03:57 AM

well the problem was there was way too many filler episodes (episodes where nothing happened). I mean DBZ alone was 295 episodes and only 50 of them were any sort of important fighting. Thats why its so loved by younger boys (like ages 13-15) because its all just beat em up action and most episodes replay the same fight scenes.

Gotien 29-06-2004 01:30 AM

Including like 15 episodes that coverd like 10 minutes when goku foght frieza on Namek....

the planet will explode in 5 minutes!
you said that 5 minutes ago...

Lionheart 29-06-2004 01:44 AM

yeah if i remember correctly, it ended up being 7 minutes. After 5, Frieza was like "she's a tough old girl, I'll give her two more mintues" and that whole little segment took exactly 10 episodes...

Gotien 29-06-2004 01:46 AM

that whole thing was a waste, not worth watching more than once..

Ult Weapons X 29-07-2004 01:21 AM

Dragon Ball Z is the god of anime. The characters, storyline and fighting techniques are unmatched.

Lionheart 29-07-2004 01:26 AM

...the characters are idiots mostly, the storyline is insanely drawn out and the fighting techniques are impossible. How could that qualify as the god of anime?

sliced bread 29-07-2004 03:21 AM

forget i even made this thread...it was a long time ago and i hadnt really seen any other anime that i got into....i still like it but im not so shure about the "god" part....

Lionheart 29-07-2004 07:56 PM

I can close it for you if you like...

sliced bread 29-07-2004 10:18 PM

meh, if people still post leave it open but if not close it....
